Duet improv pairing sax with slide guitar or dobro or similar instruments. The guitar side draws very heavily from traditional forms, adding country twang or cowboy-film atmosphere to otherwise abstract tracks (#1 being a good example).

Think roots/blues/Americana with brainly improv tossed in. Simple idea with enjoyable results -- check this out, and start with #3, 6, 11, or 12 if you're not into cluttery artsy stuff. #2 worth noting if you ever have to play the national anthem.

1- Twangy! Dobro with gloopy electronics, also sax
2- The national anthem, done up jazz-improv style.
3- Mexican guitar and distant spacey sounds. Fast but calming.
4- With piri, a Korean flute. Mid/fast "world" sound, kinda nasal
5- Quiet, pretty. Electric guitar softly jumbles it up.
6- Native American feel w/flute. Mid/fast
7- Country twang, with scary sounds then sour-toned sax
8- Banjo abstractions plus sax, very artsy
9- Fuzzy electric guitar. Midtempo, casually noisy
10- Bluesy guitar + hyper flute.
11- Bluesy/country low-level jam: driven guitar, floaty sax bursts
12- "Que Sera Sera," a jazzy sax over soft guitar. Pretty at first; gets into a burbly midtempo ramble.
